My online class just started into arrays, and I am getting this nasty error "passing arg 1 of `show_costs' makes pointer with integer without cast".

I have no idea what the problem is. If anyone would be so kinda, please help.

BTW: sorry, I have a habit of naming my variable an assortment of oddies.

       if(n[] < 5)
           n[scrub] == c;

           printf("2:---------------------------%lf", n[1];
           printf("3:---------------------------%lf", n[2];
           printf("4:---------------------------%lf", n[3];
           printf("5:---------------------------%lf", n[4];
       return 0;

double show_costs(int n[], double c); first parameter is an array of integers

show_costs(log, vald); log is not an array of integers.

if(n[] < 5) incorrect syntax, there must be a subscript inside the []

In your show_costs() function ...

int scrub;
if(n[some_valid_subscript_here] < 5)
    // what is the value of [B]scrub[/B] here?
    //  and where does it come from??
    n[scrub] == c;
